We cannot ignore this unprecedented crisis

It was deeply upsetting yesterday to watch Trump reverse environmental protections designed to combat climate change and pollution.

Our planet is facing an unprecedented crisis. One we cannot ignore. While the president puts corporate special interests ahead of our children’s future, we have to intensify the movement to save our planet—and we have to do it NOW.

If you’re with me, contribute $3 before Friday’s FEC fundraising deadline and we will take our government back from climate change deniers like Trump.

Look, I am not going to pretend that this fight will be easy. The important ones never are.

The protections Trump reversed come with a real human cost. By establishing reasonable and achievable limits on the nation’s largest source of carbon pollution—power plants—we would have prevented 3,600 premature deaths per year.

That progress is now lost. Those lives are now in jeopardy. And it will only get worse as Trump seeks to gut EPA programs that address climate change, pollution, and more.

Contribute $3 before Friday’s FEC deadline to help us fight back against Trump’s anti-environment agenda.

There is no if about it: we must fight to not just preserve the progress made on reversing climate change, but to take bold action to improve our economy, our air quality, and our planet.

That’s what we’ve done here in California. And as goes California, so goes the nation.

Thanks for everything,

Kamala Harris
U.S. Senator, California

Santa Cruz County and Madera County Central Committees endorse Kimberly Ellis for CDP Chair

The Fresno County Democratic Central Committee has not endorsed any candidate in this race.

For Immediate Release

Contact: 510-560-3704

OAKLAND, Calif. (March 28, 2017): In the race for Chair of the California Democratic Party (CDP), support from the County Central Committees is indicative of momentum from voting party members. This week, Kimberly Ellis’ campaign proudly announced the first County Central Committee endorsement of the race: Madera County. Santa Cruz County’s Central Committee was quick to follow, giving Ellis strong endorsements from the heart of California.

“Too often, our smaller, rural counties are ignored by our leaders in Sacramento. Kimberly has demonstrated her commitment to being a voice for every single one of us, not for special interests,” explained Madera County Central Committee Chair Susan Rowe. “That’s why it’s so meaningful for us to be the first Central Committee to endorse in the race for CDP Chair, and to support progressive Kimberly Ellis.”

“Politics as usual doesn’t work for us anymore,” said Santa Cruz County Central Committee Chair Coco Raner-Walter. “Here in Santa Cruz County, we represent farmers who are hurting, activists who are frustrated and families that are trying to make it. Kimberly understands all of us. She’ll stand up for all of us. That’s why we’re so proud to stand with her.”

As Ellis has visited Democrats in every corner of California, she’s heard many of the same concerns and hopes for the future of the state party. “I’m ready to work with every Democrat in California to move us forward as a state and to ensure that every Californian shares in that progress,” Ellis said. “I’m grateful for the endorsements of the hardworking Democrats in Madera and Santa Cruz Counties.”
